Nonfiction coming to the collection March 2017
How do librarians know what titles are coming out when? How do we decide which of those titles we'll purchase for the collection? We have several sources, but Publishers Weekly (PW) is one of my personal favorites. PW reviews around 9,000 books a year.
I've taken the liberty of going through the January issues and sharing the upcoming releases PW reviewers are most excited about. Each of these titles received a starred review. We don't have all of these titles in the collection yet -- most are due to hit the shelves in bookstores and libraries this month -- but you can place a hold on your copy now. Or, if you're like me, and you're typically at the 5 holds per person max, you can keep tabs on your picks a couple of ways.
My favorite way to keep track of books I want to read is through ACPL's catalog. Heather wrote an excellent post on how to do this -- click here for the details. Goodreads and LibraryThing are also options.
What new titles are you looking forward to?

Becky likes to read … A LOT. When she’s not reading, she likes to pretend that she can garden. Her thumb has no hint of green whatsoever but luckily her plants are forgiving. Her favorite books are The Shannara series by Terry Brooks
